Let's face it, bike racing is a male-dominated, testosterone-soaked sport that caters to those with the biggest ego and the most wins. And the Ritte Woman's team is here to change that. We believe it only takes a few fun girls to influence a peloton, and we are on a mission to empower other woman to cut the crap and be unafraid to just get out there and ride.
In a culture of power profiles, recovery tights and carbon bottle cage bolts, it's nice to be reminded there are still girls out there who just wanna go fast and have a blast. Because bikes are fun. Riding is fun. Racing is fun. Oh, and winning races every now and then ain't too shabby either.
The Ritte Women’s Cycling Team is a boutique-sized assembly of determined women who share a passion for racing bikes. We are based in Southern California and with our debut in the 2013 racing season we plan to make our upcoming 2014 season even better.
Beyond frequenting the Socal Racing Circuit, we plan to tour the California circuit. Not stopping there, the team will travel to other races across the states, and internationally. With our 2013 team attending the Ras na mBan international womens stage race in Ireland this last September we have carved a name for the Ritte Women’s Team into the hearts of many! We plan to continue to race at an elite level both nationally and internationally in 2014.
With our roster of six very talented women we hope to be a part of the movement that is changing women’s racing. In the last year our riders have earned State Championships in the SCNCA Team Time Trial, Team pursuit, With a top 10 finish in almost every event. The team is no stranger to the podium.
In the 2014 season we aim to top that. With a well-rounded team that encompasses the disciplines of road, crit racing, track and cross, we have set our goals and ambition high for the Team Time Trial, Mt. Hood Stage Race, Ras na mBan and many more.
As a team we strive to support and partner with companies we love, who produce products we believe in. With the support of the Ritte family behind us we feel confident in our ability to represent our possible partners in the innovative and high quality way Ritte prides itself on. As a partner you can expect to be connected to a large audience through online outlets and receive great exposure on every race day.
